if you like yemeni food , this is the place to be in Sanaa. try the Mikhbaza, backed fish it is simple, fresh and taste> price depends on the size between USD 7-12> I also tried their lamb and it is very delicious. Just try it. don't forget to ask for the forks because Yemenis eat using their hands>

Reading the Lonely Planet guide and listening to locals, I thought this restaurant was something special, but to be honest I was not impressed at all. It is famous for fish but after a lot of that in Socotra I wanted something else and I ordered the meat mix (don't remember exactly the name of the dish): when they brought... More

Their fish curry and grilled fish are out of this world. Amazing food with excellent portion size in very reasonable prices. A must visit during Sana'a

Ate here about 5 or 6 times, and each time was great. Prawns, Fish, Meat and lovey bread. But they best part was the honey and weat dessert. There are 3 branches to this chain, and each one is equally good. You'll feel safe while you enjoy a good meal

The first Shaybani restaurant, one of several now operated in Sanaa by the same family, was located in the downtown area and is festooned with pictures of high-rolling Yemeni dignitaries (ministers, business community leaders, foreign official visitors) who have graced the premises.

Alsheybaani is nowadays more like a brand name where you will find a number of restaurants in different cities titled alshaybaani. But as witnessed by many, Alshaybaani restaurant in Hadda area is by all means the best one.I recommend the Mikhbaza fish wish "Sahaawiq Jubn" (spices with cheese) and "Radib" (bread) with "Assal" (honey). For me, the best quality fish... More
